What was Churchill’s Phone Number Again?

I don’t know, but now I can find out. The UK is continuing their trend of putting old stuff up online by placing 100 years of telephone books online. The books are from 1880 through 1984 (the year of BT’s privatization). Nominally its for genealogists to be able to find their ancestors, but it would be interesting to use the data to track British citizen movements over 100 years. Right now they’re focusing on getting London up on the site, but they hope to have all of the UK up by end of next year.

I wonder if the old phone books include the colonies as well?
